    I find it ironic that you tell me not to generalise - you do it all the time in regards to boat people.

    That is not an accurate statement. It is similar to me saying that those on a disability pension don't have a disability. Most do, but some don't.

    Does anyone feel like they have so much to add? I feel like I could flood the new posts for hours.

    I agree BRV. I avoid the news cos it's bloody depressing.

    Same, I have actually stopped watching news, political shows (Q&A is my favourite but I haven't watched it since Abbott got in), I avoid the radio. It just depresses me far too much. I heard about the Manus Island troubles yesterday. Usually I'd know asap. I cannot stand the constant feeling of dread, so I pretend it isn't happening.

    I've heard that more whistleblowers have come forward about the situation on Manus. If it turns out Australia is involved in either actively attacking unarmed refugees in compounds or covering up for those doing so...and that is what I'm hearing... God, it's just atrocious.

    I keep hoping that the idiots that voted him in have now realised how stupid he is.

    But then again idiots rarely know they are idiots.

    No words.

    In summary: Acting head of Manus Island Detention Centre is a former Sri Lankan Military Commander. There's 30 Tamil refugees detained there fleeing torture from the same Sri Lankan army.

    I hope that none of you endorse this sort of Abbott hate.
